The magic of Disney lives in all of us. Whether it’s the memories it evokes of the films you watched as a child, re-watched with your children or the times you enjoyed the theme parks.
Because it is the 25th anniversary of Disney Land Paris this year and live action films are being created of the Disney classics, I wanted to share our 9 favourite Disney cross stitch kits, that you can enjoy stitching and we think, will bring a smile to your face every time to see them.
‘A Tale as old as time…’ ♪♪♪ Beauty and the Beast is an all time favourite for me, so naturally, I am thrilled it has been transformed into a live action film. This kit features all the characters including Mrs Potts, Cogsworth, Lumière and of course Belle and the Beast.
You can also create a smaller version of this kit, which focuses on Belle and the Beast.
‘Hi Ho Hi Ho, It’s off to work we go…’ ♪♪♪ (I am probably going to sing a bit of the song for each of these kits!) This kit features a gorgeous scene of Snow White discovering the Seven Dwarfs cottage along with her animal friends.
‘The wonderful thing about Tiggers, is Tiggers are wonderful chaps…’ ♪♪♪ The Tales of Christopher Robin, Pooh and friends are treasured and read to generations. Have you ever played Pooh sticks?! I can’t cross a bridge over a stream on family walks without doing it.
‘Have faith in your dreams and someday, Your rainbow will come smiling through’ ♪♪♪ This cross stitch kit is stunning. Featuring Cinderella and her sparkling dress, holding the hand of her prince and the beautiful castle in the background. It was a dream for many young children around the world.
(Okay, I can’t think of a song from Bambi… but I loved thumper!) Bambi was a whirlwind of emotions. This stunning cross stitch kit catches that in the detail of the weather and the scene it creates.
‘It’s the circle, The circle of lifeee…’ ♪♪♪ I don’t know about you, but I think I could sing every song from this word for word! This stunning kit features the phenomenal opening scene from the film when Simba is born and the animals bow down to the baby cub.
You can also stitch a smaller version of this kit which focuses on Mufasa, Sirabi, Rafiki and Simba.
We couldn’t talk about Disney cross stitch kits without mentioning Micky Mouse. Disney Fantasia, originally released in 1940 is the all-time Disney classic. It was the third Disney animated film and this kit features the most iconic of Disney characters, Micky Mouse.
‘I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream…’ ♪♪♪ This beautiful scene features the wonderful characters in the film. Sleeping Beauty, the Prince, the fairy godmothers and of course, Samson the horse. With the castle in the background, I think this would be such fun to stitch.
‘You can fly, you can fly you can fly!…’ ♪♪♪ This film brings out the inner child in all of us. This kit features peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Wendy, Michael and John Flying over London to Neverland in the Distance. Second star to the right, and straight on till morning…
